Go Big Or Go Home!

Big, bold statement necklaces are incredibly light - only 1.5 ounces.  Handmade paper discs measure 2" in diameter.  Each one has been hand painted in a base color of black, red, or green with marbling of gold and silver.  Wooden beads have been hand painted to match.  Jewelry is finished to make it water resistant.  Bead closure can be fastened at 25" or 27".  Can be adjusted about another inch each either way.

Price $55.00 plus shipping.  Paypal or cashier check accepted.

I currently have one in each color.  Can be made to order with 2-3 weeks turnaround.

Contact me at to order.

Ear Nuts and Butterflies

The weight of some of my paper earrings has been likened to the weight of butterflies.  Like in, "Lee! These earrings are so light I feel like I have butterflies on my ears!"  And just like butterflies, they have been known to fly away. Really!

To keep your earrings from escaping, I include a set of "rubber ear nuts" with each pair.  Ear nuts are those doo-hickies you put on the back of your earrings to keep them in place.  They are always seen on the back of "post" style earrings but not on "wire" style earrings, as I usually sell.  When folks buy my earrings they usually assume the ear nuts are there just to keep the earrings on the display card and the ear nuts get tossed in the trash.   This is what rubber ear nuts look like.

I like them because you can slide them just as far as you like, up and around that curve on an ear wire.  I personally use them on my post earrings because they don't pinch the back of my ear.  And if I misplace one, most stores with jewelry have little packages of them for sale.

 Just added a whole series of instant digital downloads to my Etsy Shop at "Print Me Digitals" about women.  Not princesses, strong, independent women.  I come from a long line of such women and as I was creating these I could envision different women in my family.  Hope they do the same for you.

I am always looking for more quotes, bible verses and inspirational thoughts to add to this website.  If your favorite isn't listed please let me know.

These are 8”x10”, high resolution JPEG and PDF files that you will be able to print yourself at home (like printing a photograph) or have printed at a copy shop or professional printer.  They can be printed smaller or larger, up to about 24”x30”.   A download link is sent to your email address within minutes of your order.  Once downloaded, you can print as many as you like. 

They work well for small and large prints on paper or canvas, stationery, note cards, post cards, puzzles, mugs and on fabrics such as for t-shirts, purses, totes, pillows, etc.  Use your imagination!

New Venue For My Jewelry - The Lily Pad

The Lily Pad on Highway 79 N (the Lake highway) has started carrying my jewelry.  This boutique seems to carry a little bit of everything - women, men and children's fashion, jewelry, shoes, the prettiest flip flops I've ever seen, decorative items, gifts, candles, lipstick - the list could just go on and on.  It's a wonderful store and much needed addition to the Paris Landing area.  The owner is Kim Neumair. I hope you'll stop and visit.
